Info about Novel Homework

The Butterfly Lion
Over the next 8 weeks we will be reading a class novel. The work we will be doing will cover all strand units of the English curriculum- Reading, writing and oral language.
 The objectives of doing this novel are;
  • ·         Develop confidence and competence at reading fluency.
  • ·         Read for enjoyment.
  • ·         Increase understanding of challenging vocabulary.
  • ·         Become more confident finding words in a dictionary.
  • ·         Improve presentation of written work.
  • ·         Give their thoughts and opinions on a novel.
  • ·         Give their thoughts and opinions on characters in a novel.
  • ·         Answer a range of comprehension questions.
  • ·         Write a character profile.
  • ·         Write a book report.
The children will meet these objectives in class and through nightly homework.
Some children will find aspects of the reading challenging. If you wish you may do shared reading- where you and your child both read together/read every second paragraph. They still will be able to hear the new vocabulary, increase their comprehension skills and read for enjoyment. If the novel is still causing difficulty, please let me know.

Oral Language
Please find questions based on each chapter attached. They need to be answered each week orally after each chapter is read. I would suggest that you focus on reading the chapter on a Monday and then discuss the corresponding comprehension questions on a Tuesday. Likewise focus on reading the chapter on a Wednesday and then answering the comprehension questions on a Thursday. As I say to the class comprehension questions aren’t a memory test- The child can scan back through the chapter if required to help them find an answer. We will review these questions in school also.
